Welcome to Project Life Tuesday - Week Ten. This week includes a little video for you, too :)
Here is this week's full layout:
And closeups of each page:
You can see, I took the photo of Austin with the Easter Bunny, blew it up, and split it between three pockets on the page protector. I used Photoshop Elements to crop it to 6" width by 8" height, and then I cropped that in half, so that I had two 4x6 sized prints. I just chopped the bottom print in half with my paper trimmer so that it would fit in the two 3x4 pockets.
I don't like to do this with many photos. In fact, I haven't yet in my regular Project Life albums, but the prints I'd purchased when we had them taken were odd sizes, and wouldn't fit in a normal pocket, since they were vertical. Rather than shrinking the photo to fit in a 3x4 pocket, I decided to test out enlarging it like this, and I rather like the outcome!
I used my Slice to cut out "Easter Bunny" words from scrapbook paper, and attached them to one of my 4x6 grid card freebies.
Finally, the coolest thing ever. I saw this pin on Pinterest this past week and just had to try it out.
See that QR code in the corner of the photo? If you scan it with a barcode scanner (like ScanLife) on your phone, it links to a video of Austin stacking his rings. I added the video I took to my YouTube account, and created a QR code using the link. The website I used to create the code was this one, but there are several out there. I just saved the image to my computer, and added it to a blank 4x6 file in PSE so I could send it to Walgreens and print it with my weekly prints.
Because the original video was so long, I took a quick 40 second one myself of this in action:
How awesome is this?!
And just so you can watch him stacking his rings, too, here's that video for you:
Ok, that's it for this week. Be sure to stop by The Mom Creative and check out everyone else's layouts.
